Forts of Pensacola Bay: Fort Barrancas

Special | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

Constructed between 1839 and 1844, historic Fort Barrancas was one of four forts built to protect the Pensacola Navy Yard. Located on board present-day Naval Air Station Pensacola, the artfully designed and beautifully preserved six-million brick fortification expanded on an earlier Spanish-built structure, Fort San Carlos.
